    You probably can not upload the file, because .gpx is not a valid file extension for the system.Just .kmz extensions.

    Re: Best guidebook for Kenya?

    It is indeed a pity that Bradt does not have a current Kenya guidebook. Richard Trillo´s Rough guide to Kenya is a valid alternative. Further, there´s a new article on NRT on NG 07.2021 magazine.
